How do you identify kids who will grow up to be entrepreneurs? Easy: They're the ones selling marked-up candy in school.
But that's not the only thing you were selling before you could drive. Earthworms, golf balls, mistletoe, flower seeds, hamsters, handmade bracelets, rocks, hazelnuts, grapes, and hand-drawn comics. In a striking number of cases, your ur-businesses were driven by a basic human urge: the need for ice cream money.
Some of you figured out the market quickly.
Others struggled with basic business concepts.
Some of you took less savory paths.
And your parents supported your ventures …
… well, mostly.
